Galvan Grip Reel


When it comes to unparalleled functionality in fly reels it’s pretty hard to beat Galvan fly Reels.  Because for over 25 years that’s all Galvan has done. Galvan Is family owned and operated in CA.   That’s right, Galvan Reels are 100% designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA by the Galvan Family in Sonora California. When Galvan say’s “Made in the USA” they mean it!

Our reels are machined to the highest specifications with the most current technology while remaining true to the best traditions of the past. The pride of ownership each Galvan reel owner has is the same pride of ownership that the Galvan family has of their operation. At Galvan there is no 9-5 work day. This is our life and we put into it what we must. Mixing classic styling with contemporary design and materials, Galvan Fly Reels continue to help redefine modern fly reel construction.

“Our pride in the manufacturing process and passion for the sport have earned us a reputation for excellence. Every Galvan fly reel is a testament to innovation and uncompromising craftsmanship, pairing the latest materials with a lasting commitment to quality. In an industry where technology often overshadows tradition, we believe you need a bit of both to succeed.” –  founder Bonifacio Galvan
